I'm actually a SY-22 owner, which is the SY-35 in an earlier life. I wrote a voice editor (Windows 95, 98 and NT) for the SY-22 which just happens to be 100% System Exclusive compatible with the SY-35. It can be found at:

(P.S. a friend of mine has a '35 and I thinks it's good, too!)

The SY35 is a great synth to get started on. It gives fairly intersesting pads which are easy to programme and can sound moderately decent. It's great value for money and the vector control function is excellent. The only problems concern its multi banks because you can't use the vector control and you can only use one effect for all the channels. Bass and brass are crap. On the whole, you can't go wrong with this one especially when you consider the price.

Interesting keyboard. Factory patches are weak in spots, but it has some really

nice strings and pads, and the vector synthesis allows for really nice evolving

sounds. Front panel is a bit sparse, and I wish they'd've put some sort of

wheel in for doing rapid zooming through edit parameters (the +1/-1 buttons are

kind of goofy). Has a decent feeling keyboard, so it makes a nice controller.

And since you can get them used for around $350 they're a decent buy. It's a

nice, flexible entry-level synth. It's not fantastic, but it's got charm.

Nice, easy, great pianos, organs and others, some good sounds for Dance,

grat value for sounds,has some bugs like the AWM samples are

&quot;split diferent&quot;, for example I55 ST*Modrn A and C are diferent betwen

F#4 and G4 taking from reference the C3 in the middle of the keyboard,

this bug is in almos AWM samples , thas does not affect FM &quot;D and B&quot;

the most notable is the I61 with Vector play ON LEVEL and Vector Control

set on A &quot;UPwards&quot; play 0 Transpose and listen the changes of the

sample in F#4 and G4, besides that is a great keyboard and usefull.

Efects are grat but not to fleexible example the efects are Type

of efect and Dep. 1~7 , doesn't control time and level separate.

Marks are Price vs. Sounds, Sound Quality and Usefull.

In Spain &quot;&quot;;&quot; is a great collection

of Voices and Utilities. search in yahoo SY35 if has changed

and you will find it.

This voices are exelet for Dance, Trance, progrecive etc..

The Sy-35 is my first and only synth, for now! A really amazing synth, with loads of programming features and great value, (a pirce that keeps on dropping!). Simple to use and the random voice generator is SUPER-HELPFUL! Preset voices all suck, and I do mean all! Vector programming helps the synth reach a whole new level of seqencing (the synth cannot sequence on it's own however!). However, The Voices have very noticable split points and the drum kit is absolutley *horrible*! Multi midi channels is limited to eight and polyphony is 40 notes. The synth is great, but combination of reverbs is impossible on the midi mode! All the voices have to be using the same reverb LIVE! Overall, the Synth is fab because of the ease of use, and amazing sound quality (on most voices).
